Enter through the front door of the home, with original columns and pilasters, decorative moldings, and two vertical transom windows. The details of the period carry inside with crossetted corner trim details and decorative panels below the six over six windows. A generous living room has decorative trim and painted floors with a wonderful patina. The home offices on separate floors have views over the valley. The dining room offers dual entries to the kitchen, as well as access to a full bath and linen suite.
A large eat-in-kitchen is flooded with natural light, features a horizontal wainscoting, and is anchored by a Pioneer Maid wood cook stove. There is also a six-burner Aga range, Bosch dishwasher, soap stone countertops and plenty of room for a farmhouse table. The refrigerator is located in an adjacent dry pantry/mud room.
Upstairs are four bedrooms and one full bath. The bedroom under the gabled roof includes a large walk-in closet. Two bedrooms feature frieze band windows and original wide-plank pine floors. The third bedroom is located adjacent to the second floor study and back stairs which lead to the kitchen.
A 1,400 square foot blue stone terrace across the back of the house has a panoramic view of the entire valley. The three-story dairy barn is located across the road. Another two story “party” barn was recently renovated and is adjacent to an apple orchard and six dry stacked stone planting beds. A detached, two-car garage and additional parking pad are located next to the home. And all only minutes to Russell’s General Store, Brushland Eating House, Bovina Fermentory and Bovina Montessori. 2.5 hours from the GWB!
